NXP Semiconductors announced the AXP family of logic translators with its new power-saving and high-performance applications. The new family of translators offers a range of voltage translation from 0.7V to 5.5V with a low-power voltage translation.

The AXP translators (AXPnT) are suitable for high-performance applications with Microprocessors/Microcontrollers/SOCs operating at low voltages below 1.8V that still need to interface with I/O peripheral solutions typically operating at 2.5 V, 3.3 V, or even 5.5 V.

In 2014, the company introduced the AXP family of logic devices, offering power logic functions. With the introduction of the AXPnT, they now offer solutions to interfacing Microprocessors/Microcontrollers/ASICs operating at 0.7 V to peripheral devices operating at 5.5 V.

The AXPnT includes standard buffers, as well as gates and configurable functions. They are available in both leaded and leadless package options, including NXP's 5C and 6Cpin GX packages. By providing low power voltage translator products, NXP Semiconductors support the migration of applications to lower voltages. The result is power savings for battery powered applications, while at the same time facilitating the interfacing of lower-voltage ASICs, microprocessors, microcontrollers, or SOC chips with legacy higher-voltage peripheral devices in the market place.

The AXP translator family of devices are expected to sample in February 2016.
